CHAT delivers Health Walks across East Ayrshire with the aim of improving health and wellbeing. CHAT works in partnership with Paths for All who are the National organisation that promotes walking for health across Scotland.

Who can take part?

Our health walks are aimed at everyone regardless of their fitness level.

How long the walks last

Walks last for a maximum of 60 minutes.

Walk leaders and support

We have two walk leaders on our walks who are Paths For All leader trained. One walk leader is at the front of the group and the second walk leader acts as back up so that everyone can walk at their own pace. We are looking to recruit new Walk Leader Volunteers and lead walks in their community. Please contact CHAT if you are interested in becoming a Walk Leader Volunteer.

Are the walks difficult?

All of our walks are low level unless otherwise advertised. While it might take some of our walkers a bit longer to complete the walk, we understand that everyone is working towards their own goal.

Our groups are friendly and welcoming with some of our long standing walkers acting as a buddy for new people. We understand that joining a group where everyone knows each other can be daunting for some.
